@daedalus it turns out the guy whose public persona is being an asshole, was an asshole!

@daedalus I say this as someone who liked his stuff for a while despite that, until his views on JS finally became too much for me.

@daedalus wow. I mean, they make good software. But that blog post doesn’t inspire me in thinking they have a healthy internal culture. Looks like they’re concentrating soft power and making it less transparent, centralising decision making, and discouraging collaborative mindset.

@emmadavidson @daedalus Given how many people are quitting, it sounds like the internal culture wasn't terrible, but rapidly becoming so. https://www.theverge.com/2021/4/30/22412714/basecamp-employees-memo-policy-hansson-fried-controversy

@stibbons @daedalus an org I’m in uses their software. Unsure how I feel about them using it, but the software is still the best fit for their purpose of anything available, and they don’t have the capacity to roll their own PM system.

techbros 

@emmadavidson @stibbons There are other PM systems. Dunno how long Basecamp will remain viable after this.
